The Bachelor and The Bachelorette Are Racist, Lawsuit Claims



Filed under : Celebrity News, Featured

Two black men have launched a lawsuit against ‘The Bachelor,’ alleging that the reality TV franchise is racist.

Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson, two Nashville natives have filed a class action lawsuit against ABC and the producers of ‘The Bachelor’ franchise, claiming deliberate discrimination against people of color (African-Americans, Latinos, and Asian-Americans).

The two African-American men and their lawyers consider this a “landmark civil rights case that will move social justice and economic equality forward.”

Both Claybrooks, an entrepreneur and former all-American football player, and Johnson, an aspiring NFL athlete and active community servant, applied during an open casting call for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette in August 2011.

Claybrooks claimed that he was interviewed for less than half the time of white applicants in front of him. Johnson alleges that he fared even worse. He was apparently stopped just inside the door and asked what he was doing there.

Both men felt they were unfairly dismissed because of their race.

Lawyers for the men claim that executive producer and defendant Mike Fleiss’ insistence that the show does not get a enough applicants of color was “just pretext. We think they purposely do not want people of color on this show.”

He estimated there have been dozens, maybe even hundreds of contestants turned away based on race, As he pointed out, in all of the 23 seasons, there have been no Bachelors and Bachelorettes of color.

He went on to state that ‘The Bachelor’ franchise is sending a bad message to America: “a message of exclusiveness — of denying people opportunity — and that has a negative effect on this country.”

The men refused to discuss their financial goals for the case. They instead speak of it in terms of “a vehicle for change.”

Warner Horizon Television, one of the producers of ‘The Bachelor’, responded to the allegations on Wednesday, saying they are “baseless and without merit.” They point out that the hopefuls looking to attract the attention of the Bachelor or Bachelorette come from a diverse ethnic background. However, the lawsuit focuses on the homogeneous casting of the starring role, which in recent years has been chosen from among the top three contestants from a previous season.

    Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, White countries for everyone????????

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into White countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY White countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would bit take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives will just say that I’m a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.
